LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NAB 2013) -- Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI), driving digital entertainment innovation, today announced DivX Video Service , an end-to-end video solution for high-quality multi-screen video delivery that is designed to integrate with and enhance TV Everywhere and over-the-top entertainment services. Building upon core DivX ® video technologies and DRM, as well as MainConcept ® professional encoders, DivX Video Service offers components for managing the entire video distribution chain from creation and secure delivery to multi-screen playback. This end-to-end approach enables video services to offer the highest possible level of consistency, flexibility, and interoperability.

DivX Video Service is available now and supports a range of entertainment distribution models including digital downloads and connected-device streaming.
